(This post is best read aloud in an outrageously fake Russian accent.)
Please to be noting that there is being new email address for to reach host of this site.
Is being superior Russian mail service called YANDEX.
Is surprisingly fast service, even when being used from decadent capitalist United States of America. See for yourself: YANDEX.COM
. Is being totally free, with unlimited emails, and is including room for massive 30MB attachment, large enough to fit full-sized image of Motherland statue.
Yandex is just like Yahoo used to be before Yahoo was "improved" in so many ways that are being inferior and crappy. (Unfortunately, the other American webmail services with unlimited storage have some of the same crap.)
Can you open messages in new browser tab? DA!
Can you copy and paste email addresses easily? DA! (But please to be using "light" version of service.)
Can you import mail from old service? DA! Theoretically. (Yahoo is uncooperative at present. But problem is with Yahoo, not Yandex.)
Is there any Cyrillic type for you to deal with? NYET!
When composing email, does font increase for no good reason, like is happening on Yahoo? NYET!
Are there any advertisements for capitalist goods and services? NYET!
(You can quit using the fake Russian accent now.
Seriously, the font problem was the final straw. Every time I hit "enter," the font would get larger. That's when I decided I had to nix Yahoo.)
(Besides, Yahoo is notoriously insecure. Not that one can expect really good security from any other major email service -- hell, even Hushmail was compromised -- but still...Yahoo is really
(And that brings up another point. After Yahoo was subjected to its most recent major hack job, the company asked email users to choose a new password. Unfortunately, even after I did that, they asked me to choose a new password again. And again. And again and again!)
(And what's this crap about demanding my cell phone number? I don't let anyone
have my number! Seriously, like maybe six people in the world have that number. Why would I give it to freakin' Yahoo?
(I'm not the only complaining about what has happened to Yahoo mail, by the way. Lots of other people are ticked off. I would have preferred to use an American service, but each one had a problem -- for example, AOL mail won't let you open messages in new tabs. Instead, your messages open in a new window. Why would anyone want that? Who made that design decision? Are these companies trying
to lose users?)
(And now please go back to reading this post out loud in an outrageously fake Russian accent.)
Added bonus, comrades! Yandex is superior also because these days, is being less dangerous for KGB to read your mail before you do, rather than for NSA to read your mail before you do.
YANDEX! Is being new party line! Use now
, comrade! Because some webmail systems are more equal than others!
Be warned, Yahoo: We will BURY you!
(I'll be very impressed if you can name the babe in the final image. I'll be very very
impressed if you can name her father, whom I once had the honor of meeting.)
